    I don't see a stock, just the tip of a barrel, part of a receiver, trigger and a magazine floating above some wood.

    Hehehe... good one...

    Yea that forward rail mount comes on and with the SOCOM 16. It also comes on the SOCOM II I believe (along with a load of other rails on that one). And can be put on any M1A for that matter. You do then have to cut the upper guard of a normal upper hand guard out so it will slot through. But otherwise it is a normal M1A stock. It really works best with a Red Dot of some kind because of its forward position. Not so well with optics that need closer eye to optic position. Works real good with a Holosight or a Red Dot. And that is sort of the intent of this model is a "Sort of CQC" weapon or medium to longer ranges in that application.

    If I had 1500 spending bucks, I'd get the Socom in a heartbeat. Nice stock... Nothing DuraCoat can't do though...

    I think Springfield will sell that mount. It actually clamps around the barrel. Not sure if its in the catalog though, you might have to call them. It is the same one on both versions of the SOCOM. The 16 and the II.

    That is sweet! A SOCOM is on my 'would love to have but will never be able to afford to buy' list. Haha.

    I heard another guy on another board call the SOCOM II the "Cheesegrater" :)
    Perhaps your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.

    I had a SOCOM II that I converted back to a SOCOM 16, I bought the scout rail and hand guard on eBay, I think I ended up paying $118. Fulton Armory makes a scout rail, but it's pricey.

    VLTOR makes the quad rail for the SOCOM II, but you can only order it through Springfield. I don't know if you can order the scout rail from them, I sent an inquiry to them prior to going the eBay route, but I never got a response.

    I don't know if Rick even does em anymore or if he did them very widespread. The guy I got this off of had three of four done by him. One was a real nice Vietnam style tiger stripe four color one.

    I think you would have to call Springfield about that rail. Its not a stock item I know that.

    He used to. He was a pretty prolific painter back in the day but he seemed to quit around 03 or so. He had a site and business called Whamo-Camo. Was pretty well known at Thefireingline and was (may still be) Admin there.

    Not sure what he is up too but his stocks rarely come on the market. He signed them inside.

    I can ask the guy I bought mine off of if he is letting any more go. He had a good group of them done by Rick. He put two up and I should have bought them both. The Tiger got snatched while I was posting a picture for the seller! But I got the Desert Sand before I posted it for him...

    Here is a related site:

    The fellow I got it from had a good number of guns done by Rick. You will see some of them in this picture. Not all of them are Whamo-Camo but a good number. You will see this Desert Sand in this picture and according to Don it is rare. Don admits he has an "M1A Problem"
